I am in Wilmington, NC, I'm sure we would enjoy collecting together. I used
to catch the red salamanders when I was a kid in W.Va. the ones I caught only
had a few tiny black specks. maybe it was a regional variation. But they were
always bright red and not very common. I would catch them when I would clean
out the springs on our property for the wildlife to drink out of (and me too
when I was out hunting or just hiking). Often they would crawl right out of the
vein of water as poured out of the hillside. I caught maybe one every two years
or so out of about 6 to 8 springs. Someone pointed out they my memory may be
faulty and I remember them as being bigger than they were, could be true but
they were easily the biggest salamanders I ever caught.
